The guy just can't stop!
By Armand C. Hale

The news websites are just humming with all the hype on Barry's "tax the rich" and how "everyone must sacrifice" to lower the debt. Well, let's think about this. (JMJ)

First, Barry wants everyone to pay their fair share to lower the massive debt incurred from his exhorbitant spending with the stimulus and other failed programs. He raided the coffers to do this leaving nothing in the cookie jar.

Then, with the debt limit being reached, he demanded that congress give him an additional $2.5T to fund his programs without addressing the spending frenzy that got us to the debt limit. And like a spoiled child who doesn't get his way, he threatened to not send out the social security checks to instill fear about the impact of the debt.

Now, he takes a pot shot at making the rich pay their fair share with increased taxes in order to fund his continuing failed programs like the America Jobs Act which really doesn't spurn job growth. For as any business owner knows when the government money stops flowing, so do any extra jobs.

Next he has his sights set on the Military and Federal Service employees as another way to put the monkey of debt on "their backs." He has already stopped any pay raises for the next 2-3 years for civil servants. But now Barry wants to raise the retiree contribution for TRICARE and increase the fed service contributions for their retirement. This is from someone who has never served, never endured the hardships of being away from family or go into harm's way. Military are not the same as civilian. They are on call 24/7/365 days a year. They don't work standard 8 hr days and don't always get the holidays and weekends off like civilians do. And unlike most civilians we take an "oath" to protect and defend the U.S. Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. And finally we are prepared to give our lives at a moment's notice. Top that Barry! TRICARE is one of those small "thank you for your service" entitlements and not to be put on par with any civilian program, period1

This Barry guy just can't stop himself. All he knows is how to spend, and spend other people's money. My money! He is in a free fall of spending psychosis! He has no knowledge of economics, foreign policy, finance, or a basic understanding of what makes the average American citizen tick. From his "throne" he rules like we are surfs and expected to just blindly accept anything he throws out there at us. But then, according to him, the average American citizen is too stupid to understand anything about the national debt and that needs to be left to the political experts. These are the same experts that got us into this spending frenzy in the first place!

The role of government is not to spurn job growth, but to inspire the environment for businesses to create new jobs. Instead, Barry's response has been added bureaucracy, which stifles the basic concept of job growth; more regulations; more government interference; more of everything except what is truly needed, less and less government involvement. But what can this guy do being a student of socialism and socialistic thought? Taxing the Rich (another way of saying "Redistribution of Wealth), is just his failed understanding of basic economics to try and garner a rise in the polls for his falling approval numbers.

Now the headlines read how the governing phase has ended as he demands passing the jobs bill. He demands? He demands nothing! He can ask the Congress to pass his bills, but to demand just lets his inexperience come out since he knows no other way to get what he wants. 2012 just can't come soon enough!

Are better off then you were before Barry fooled you into voting for him? I'm not!
